Health and care training provider The Learning Enterprise has retained its Quality Mark accreditation from the UK’s Sector Skills Council for Health, based on face-to-face training and delivery.
The Quality Mark is considered the ‘gold standard’ for the provision of training and gives health and care professionals confidence in the programmes offered. To become accredited, The Learning Enterprise’s training has to meet rigorous standards and its staff have to demonstrate they have the skills and knowledge they need to do their jobs to the highest possible quality.
The Learning Enterprise are one of just 42 training providers to carry the Skills for Health endorsement, meaning that their programmes meet the nationally recognised expectation of the UK health sector.
Retaining the accreditation is part of an annual renewal process, and involves submitting evidence against three main areas of assessment:
- Ethics, Values and Behaviours
- Health Sector Engagement
- Learning Excellence
The Learning Enterprise passed all areas of assessment and demonstrated a particularly strong adaptation to virtual learning during the pandemic, showing no loss in the quality of training offered.
This achievement is another layer of quality assurance against their programmes, ensuring that health and care professionals have access to courses that are beneficial for their career progression and advancement.
Jacqui Smart, Director of Operations, TLE said: “I am delighted that we have again been awarded Quality Mark status, and I thank everyone for all their continued hard work and perseverance during the challenging times we’ve all faced.
“I’m confident our learners can benefit from our training standards with improved outcomes. They can be reassured that their training has been assessed to the highest standards to meet constantly evolving sector needs.”
The Learning Enterprise offers training courses to health and care organisations, and individuals working in health and care and is a registered apprenticeship provider. Information about the courses is available at www.thelearningenterprise.co.uk.
